Syndicate DTW1991 has appointed John Cowell as Senior Underwriter and Ed Colville as Underwriter in its UK and International underwriting team.
John has over 25 years’ experience in the UK and International insurance markets. He held senior underwriting roles in the UK before transferring to Pen Underwriting (Australia) in 2014, where he was responsible for product development and the management of their underwriting facilities.
Ed joins DTW1991 from Trilogy Managing General Agents, a coverholder partner of DTW1991, where he was underwriting a UK SME portfolio. He has also worked for Brit and QBE in underwriting roles.
John Spenceley, Head of UK and International, said: “We pride ourselves on the quality of our coverholder relationships and our strong underwriting expertise and discipline. John and Ed are well known within our coverholder community and with their extensive market and product knowledge are well placed to support our coverholder partners in developing their portfolios with us. It’s a pleasure to welcome them both to the syndicate.”
John Cowell, Senior Underwriter, UK and International commented: “DTW1991’s commitment to its coverholders is refreshing. I am impressed by the way DTW1991 executes its delegated authority business model and excited by the syndicate’s ambition for itself and its coverholder partners. This is a compelling opportunity.”
